Product Description

A New Edition. Chiefly of interest for the inscription by Le Fanu to the first blank page which is dated December 1857. The book is firmly bound in later(much later, probably in the last thirty years) half-leather with marbled boards, it is externally clean but a little rubbed. The text block is toned and slightly stained with some crossed out numbers and pencil notes on the same page as the Le Fanu inscription. It would be better of course if it were one of his own titles, but nevertheless this is a rare opportunity to own a book that has been handled and inscribed by Le Fanu.
